Welcome to Week 2 of the Pootler’s Design Team; every Thursday this month I have been tasked with sharing a project using the Glamper Greetings Stamp set from the Autumn Winter catalogue by my lovely friend and team leader Sam (aka: Pootles!). There are 5 of us taking the challenge this month, and you can pop over to Sam’s blog today to see the other projects.
I had SO much fun making my project this week. It’s actually a Christmas gift for a very special person in my life, but I’m almost certain she will never see this to I’m pretty safe to share it here, and Pinterest, Facebook and everywhere else!
Regular visitors to my blog will know that I’m a bit of watercolour junkie, I just love it, and when this stamp set arrived I saw this project instantly, I just couldn’t miss the opportunity to watercolour this fab camper! The Camper is watercoloured in Tempting Turquoise, Sahara Sand and Pumpkin Pie, with Smoky Slate accents.
One of the many great things about Stampin’ Up! inks is that they are water-based, which means that you can do heaps of techniques with them, including watercolouring. My top tip for watercolouring Stamped imaged is getting the right ink to stamp in in the first place. I use Stampin’ Up! Archival Basic Black, but you could also use Staz-on, these inks are solvent based and so don’t run with the water, so you can watercolour to your hearts content without worrying about muddy images. My other must have for watercolouring is Stampin’ Up! Watercolour Paper, oh and an Aqua-Painter!
I stamped and watercoloured the Glamper on a separate piece of Watercolour paper and carefully fussy cut it to give a bit of dimension. I did think about doing something similar with the bunting, but that might have been a bit much!
